The Houston Texans will continue to face life without rookie outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney, who suffered a setback on his meniscus surgery.
Houston Texans outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney has battled a knee injury all season as a rookie, and he has been ruled out of the Texans’ game against the Tennessee Titans.
Clowney had injured his knee in the Texans’ season opener, and he has missed the majority of the season as a result. The Texans defense has performed solidly despite this key injury though as they are 11th in scoring defense with 20.5 points allowed per game.
The Texans linebacker was selected first overall in the 2014 draft, but he has not lived up to his billing thus far due to his injury woes.
Clowney underwent meniscus surgery to heal from his knee injury, but he suffered a setback and will continue to sit out as a result.
Since the Texans are not likely to make the playoffs, they may have no choice but to shut down Clowney for the remainder of the season.
